Say Hello to Spring Say Goodbye to Bugs

    When Spring arrives, so to do all the flying, crawling, stinging, biting beasts.

Burt’s Bees to the rescue. 

100% Natural Herbal Insect Repellent.  
Castor oil
Rosemary oil
Lemongrass oil
Cedar oil
Peppermint oil
Citronella oil
Clove oil
Geranium oil
Soy bean oil
vitamin  E

I have used this stuff for 10+ years and it works.   It works in the jungle.  
It works in the woods.  It works at the beach.  It works!

When, I do a photo shoot, there is nothing more frustrating than a model 
swatting at flying beasts and frantically slapping mosquitoes while jumping around 
like she’s walking on hot coals.

Burt’s Bees to the Rescue.  This is an oil, not an aerosol spray, so you rub it in like a lotion.  
It smells like lemon oil.  It is all natural.  It is the best.   

Secret - -  Some insects are attracted to the Co2 from exhaling.  
The cure is Lilac Fragrance oil.
Lilac fragrance oil masks the smell of Co2 to insects.  I put a dab of Lilac Fragrance oil 
on my neck and it does the trick.  No more bugs flying up my nose or in my eyes. 

Lilac essential oil is unbelievably expensive.  It is only made in France, 
to the best of my knowledge.

I found this Lilac Fragrance oil on Etsy.  It smells just the way it should, to mask the Co2.  
It is the purest I could find.  I am sure there are others that work as well.

   Question:  What is a Natural insect repellant that works?

Answer:  Burt’s Bees Natural Insect Repellent, combined with the Lilac Fragrance oil.

Burt's Bees insect repellant? I tried using Burt's Bees lip balm once and ended getting my lips burned.. A traumatic experience for me.. But might try this though! Thanks!

Two great sets of tips (the use of a paintbrush for cleaning the outside of a camera case, in the post below) and a fail-safe insect repellent. Already love 'Burt's Bees' products but hadn't come across this. Perfect for the damp, mosquito and midge-heavy summers in the UK! And anything that keeps insects away from my camera is very welcome. Some nasty little insect crept right inside my camera last weekend and it was a bit of a trial carefully getting it out again.

Oooh I'd like to give that Burts bees repellant a try.

Previously I've used the really strong stuff that contains Deet and I know that can't be good because it literally melts my nail polish on my toes!! Eeek!

Useful post, thanks :)
